I flew out of KBOS last week, which is one of the airports that has the new screening rules. I was carrying a Think Tank Airport Commuter backpack with 3 bodies, 3 lenses, including an 80-400 (beast). I asked the TSA guys if I could just open the top of that bag and put it through x-ray without taking everything out of it. Other than foam padding, there was nothing below each piece of gear and of course, with the top open, there was absolutely nothing above. That worked just fine and there were no undue hassles. As much as I don't like backpacks, that Think Tank bag was one of the best investments I've made. It will hold a lot more than I was carrying on this trip. On the trip home, I got TSA PRE on my boarding pass and there were no hassles at all.
